Installing 4-way flashing hazard warning lights

Anyone know how I go about installing a standard 4-way flashing hazard light system in my 1967 fiat 500F? How would I integrate that in the light switching box under the hood?

I also want to install the switch for the curbside reverse light as well; unless it had a backup light in this model already and mine is just blown.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Re: Installing 4-way flashing hazard warning lights

With respect to the hazard lights, I'd visit your local autoelectrician and talk to them about it. Sometimes it is quite easy to wire up the turn signals to flash in unison, but frequently it is a hassle. Why do you want to do this ? Bambinos never break down, do they ?

And the reversing light - my 500F is not fitted with one, though it should not be difficult once you get access to the base of the gear lever to fit a switch. Once again, an autoelectrician should be able to help.

Re: Installing 4-way flashing hazard warning lights

Sure, they never break down....lol Thanks for the advice although I was pretty sure other than going to an auto electrician outright, I was out of options.

The reason, as you asked, is to pass the inspection station when I get it to Germany. Either I register it as an antique which means I can only drive it to shows or rarely elsewhere, or I modify it to meet generic safety standards like seat belts and 4 way lights in order to register it like any other car and drive it endlessly.

Re: Installing 4-way flashing hazard warning lights

You can get kits to fit Hazards to a car without them http://www.moss-europe.co.uk/Shop/Vi...63&SortOrder=1 is just one example of whats available. the only thing is the turn signals must not intefere with the hazards but this kit should sort that out.

i'm assuming your 500 is 12v negative earth? if not it might be harder to obtain a kit but still possible.

as for the reverse light, it's a bit more difficult, usually reverse lights are built in to the gearbox, do later models have the reverse light?
